I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    Money being printed, borrowed and spread most generously among those who need it least. Corporate buy-backs, bonuses and shareholder dividends, with no conditions attached, no accountability, no oversight. Republican Capitalism at its zenith! I wonder if Newt Gingrich is getting HIS piece of the action?

    No way, Teddy. No more funds for public parks. Cheney & Bush, then trumpie have removed preservation lands from government protection (Government IS the problem!) so than oil, mining and timber harvesting can flourish!

    The point I am trying to get across is that vandalism and mob violence will only bring reactions from the other side. Tearing down statues ought to be REMOVING statues in a regulated manner. Tearing down a statue of Lincoln because a former slave is kneeling BESIDE him? How far do some people want to go?

    Both those on the Left and Right are moving too fast, with their emotions doing the driving. Change is needed, some of it long overdue, but some pause, reflection and THOUGHT is also needed.

    Earthquake, tsunami, tornado, drought, disease; Nature still calls all the shots, and reminds us of its power time to time. We can wail & whine all we want.

    The repubs, probably at the behest of the Wealthy Elite, began to look toward strong one-party rule during the Clinton administration, led by Newt Gingrich. Do NOT cooperate. Stonewall. Demand YOUR way or nothing else. Since that time, the repubs have refused to compromise, under Boehner & McConnell. Their sole purpose is to look after the wants of the wealthy. This is EXACTLY how events in France during the 1920’s and 1930’s played out, leading to the abandonment of the French Constitution and voting in a fascist Vichy regime.

    Will a Trump supporter who reads this PLEASE explain to me why the ACA should be repealed? I truly want to hear from you.
